Tears and trauma

We spent the morning with Jenny Hwang teaching refugee church leaders concerning basic trauma care and exploring what a trauma aware church might look like in the Kakuma refugee camp context.

The refugee pastors shared the kinds of trauma they see in the camp – and several shared their personal traumatic experiences with the group.

A couple pastors shared how tears and time played an important role in washing away their own trauma.
